I save everything...envelopes, newspaper, cardboard tubes, plastic & glass containers and burned out light bulbs. I boarder on hoarder BUT I do try to use everything I save in my craft projects. These pears were my desperate attempt to use up a few of the bulbs I have been saving over the years and I'm so happy with they way they turned out. When I was finished I thought of 100 other ways to decorate them, but that's for another day. Upcycle, recycle and reuse as much as you can my awesome friends! Now get out there and Make Your Mark! xo
I used decorative paper but book pages would look beautiful, too!
Some of my decorative papers
The foil helps smooth out the screw thread area but it's not 100% necessary!
Watch how I make them here! I used a Xyron Creative Station which turns everything into a sticker, but regular white glue would work, too. I find my Xyron makes it easier and less messy!
Aren't we a pear! Love you all!
